My vector drawings of 2 Lotus greats – the everlasting Lotus 7 and the Lotus Esprit supercar.
The Lotus Seven is a small, simple, lightweight two-seater open-top sports car produced by Lotus Cars (initially called Lotus Engineering) between 1957 and 1972.
It was designed by Lotus founder Colin Chapman and has been considered the embodiment of the Lotus philosophy of performance through low weight and simplicity. The original model was highly successful with more than 2,500 cars sold, due to its attraction as a road legal car that could be used for clubman racing.
After Lotus ended production of the Seven, Caterham bought the rights and Caterham still make both kits and fully assembled cars based on the original design.
Dany Bahar, Chief Executive Officer of Group Lotus, said: "The Esprit is the ultimate super car. In the past when people thought of the Esprit, They thought of the movies, Bond, Pretty Woman, Basic Instinct but this time around, the car is the star of the show. We’ve stuck to the Lotus core values of performance through lightweight and teamed them with future technology and exceptional engineering to Ensure that the Esprit will be the leader of the pack. I’m very proud of this car. "
